Book Description:
Since its initial publication in 1993, A History of Russian Architecture has remained the most comprehensive study of the topic in English, a volume that defines the main components and sources for Russia s architectural traditions in their historical context, from the early medieval period to the present. This edition includes a new Prologue and elegant photographic essay drawn from the author s research and fieldwork over the past decade in remote areas of the Russian north and Siberia. Subject to influences from east and west, Russian architecture s distinctive approaches to building are documented in four parts of this definitive study: early medieval Rus up to the Mongol invasion in the mid twelfth century; the revival of architecture in Novgorod and Muscovy from the fourteenth to the seventeenth centuries; Peter the Great s cultural revolution, which extended through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; and the advent of modern, avant garde, and monumental Soviet architecture. Beautifully illustrated and carefully researched, A History of Russian Architecture provides an invaluable cultural history that will be of interest to scholars and general audiences alike.
